All About Proteins...




Whole Foods Market 365 Whey Protein Powder


Whey is the by-product of cheese manufactured from cow's milk.† It also stands for an excellent protein source, because it contains both all-important and non-vital amino acids.†

Many doctors suggest to pregnant mothers to use 365 whey protein powder as a food supplement to help their unborn child(s) obtain sufficient levels of amino acids required for proper development while in the womb.

365 whey protein powder products are also normally used by athletes and bodybuilders to accelerate muscle development and aid in recovery of muscle degeneration.

A lot of health food stores market whey protein powder products which can be combined with milk or water to make a dietary shake or drink.


Definiton of Proteins

Proteins are an organic compound consisting of peptide bonds and amino acids.† They are essential to the structure and function of all living cells.† Our bodies contain different types of proteins.† Together they perform a wide variety of biological functions, such as:
  • Enzymes, catalyzing various chemical reactions
  • Forming structures (like scaffolding) within cells
  • Immune response, helping us to ward off disease and infections
  • Transport and storage of various ligands
  • Regulation of cellular function

How Much Protein Do We Need?

How much protein a person needs to consume on a daily or weekly basis depends greatly on a personís overall fitness level and activity, energy intake, your age and your general state of health.†

For example, during childhood, increased protein is needed for growth and development.† Increased protein may also be helpful to overcome an illness or a traumatic effect on the body such as after an operation.




What Happens When We Do Not Get Enough Protein?

Without the right amount of protein we may experience such symptoms as:
  • Fatigue
  • Hair loss
  • Loss of skin elasticity
  • Reduced body temperature
  • Reduced muscle mass
  • Hormone irregularities

What Happens When We Eat or Digest Too Much Protein?

If we digest too much protein, we may experience these side-effects:
  • Liver dysfunction due to increased toxic residues
  • Calcium loss, leading to a decrease in bone density
  • Immune system implications
  • Protein in urine
  • Triggering of certain food allergic reactions
  • If caused by eating too much red meat, an increase in saturated fats, leading to increased weight gain, may be experienced.

Why Are Proteins Necessary To Our Overall Good Health?

As humans we cannot internally synthesize all the amino acids our body requires, so we need to consume food containing protein to provide us with those missing amino acids or building blocks.† We break down proteins through digestion within our stomachs from the foods we eat.† They supply the bodyís building blocks (i.e., amino acids) we need to live and grow.

In many respects, every tissue of our body uses proteins in its own way to help it perform its designed function.† For example, our muscles are formed by proteins, helping us to lift objects.† Similar functions occur for our skin, bones, and organs.

Proteins also assist in the repair of cells.† And similar to carbohydrates and fats, they can also serve as an energy source for our bodies.


Great Sources of Protein

  • Animal meats
  • Grains
  • Legumes
  • Eggs and other dairy products
